Get ready to return!

The first day of school is  Wednesday, August 21st! Summer is passing quickly. In fact, on August 9, schools will mail letters with class assignments and bus schedules to all enrolled students. Middle schoolers are also reminded to work on their summer reading assignments:

Summer Reading Suggestions & Assignments

Students – it is important to keep your minds active over the summer break. Students going into middle school (and high school) have a reading assignment to complete before returning to school in the fall. Teachers have also put together a list of reading suggestions for students going into grades 1 through 5. For more information, please read on…

Reading is an important way to keep your mind active over the summer break. Our local public libraries offer not only a tremendous selection of resources, but also assistance in picking out just the right books for every interest. (The libraries also offer lots of great reading clubs and activities.)

Students going into Hawthorn Middle Schools in the fall (grades 6, 7 and 8) must read at least one book over the summer. While teachers have compiled a list of reading suggestions, students are free to read whatever books interest them – then log the titles on the chart to turn in when they return to school in the fall.
